    Tire shines

    What do you guys do for tire shines? What products seem to work the best without spin off?

    I have been using the meguiars gel that smells like grape and want to see what other options are out there.

    I used the grape stuff for the longest time and it works really well... but ive gotten real lazy and just hit them with Meguiers Hot Shot aerosol spray lately.

    The grape stuff does last a while and soaks into the tire.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who noticed it smelt like grapes. Put it on today, see how long it last.

    I use a lot of Chemical Guy's products and can vouch for their VRP Protectant. The stuff I've tried off the shelf in the past, like foaming spray and other wipes from Armor All, Meguiar's, etc. have all worn off usually within a day of applying it. VRP seems to last much longer. Just my experience.

    303 Aerospace...gives a nice matte finish with one coat, or more shine with additional coats.

    +1 for 303 Aero, it's a great product and leaves a nice matte finish, not a cheap shiny/wet finish from a used car lot.

    Forgot to mention that I have used the "grape" stuff in the past. I think it is called Hi Endurance...seemed to attract way too much dirt on the tires.

    I've been using 303 on my interior. The same product works well on tires too?

    I have used tire wet for about 20 years on interior and tires. Lasts a long time on tires and still shines after New England storms!!!!

    It's like putting sunblock on your stuff, and is good for anything vinyl, rubber, or plastic. I'm a huge fan of the 303 Cleaner too - strong enough to pull oil stains out of just about anything, but gentle enough to use without gloves, and it has no scent at all.

    I clean my car weekly but the wheels only get some simple green and a hosing and I'm done.
    Not as many parts left over this time... what am I missing?
